Winter Solstice 2008

Tonight is the longest night of the year, at 4 minutes after midnight Universal Time. Congratulations, I guess; it's all downhill from here, until the next solstice.
For no logical reason (except that it was very dark inside the tree) I attach a picture of the famous Wawona Tree in Yosemite, which collapsed under a two-ton load of snow in 1969, at the young age of 2300!
